Amazon Greenlights Two Kids-Targeted Series

Amazon will add to its kids-targeted programming portfolio with the development of two new series, Pete The Cat and Costume Quest, the company said Monday.

The animated Pete The Cat, based on the award-winning book series by illustrator/creator James Dean that follows a cat and his groovy guide to life, will debut a 14-episode first season sometime in 2018, said Amazon. Costume Quest, an animated series based on the video game series of the same name, will target six to 11 year olds, said company officials.

“The creative talent behind Pete the Cat and Costume Quest have a sensibility and pedigree that will resonate well with our customers,” said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios in a statement.“ We are thrilled to be working with such innovative and visionary thinkers in the business.”
